"This truck has the perfect power train combo with the 8.1 engine and Allison transmission. It's a workhorse and great for towing. Diesel towing power without paying the price for the fuel. However, gas mileage is poor as to be expected.
Very comfortable to drive and handles well in spite of its size.
Decent off road capability for a stock 4WD."
Pros: "duramax diesel with allision 1000 tranx. 20mpg"
Cons: "long extended cab and 8' bed"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"This truck has the duramax/allusion trany. Has never pulled any heavy loads. The cap is a ARE alum/40thousands thick sheet metal painted the same color as the truck, silver, with barn doors and side tinted windows that slide open w/screen. Has had no problems."
